Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Wednesday abruptly announced that the closed-door hearing for former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen had been delayed for at least another few weeks.

"In the interests of the investigation, Michael Cohen’s testimony has been postponed until February 28th," Schiff said without further elaboration.

Cohen had originally been scheduled to give sworn testimony behind closed doors this Friday. He is scheduled to report to prison on March 6th after pleading guilty to multiple counts of tax and bank fraud, including making an illegal campaign contribution at the direction of President Donald Trump.
